Deeside Gardens leaves a safety risk

by Ian Yuill on 6 December, 2018

After being contacted by a concerned local resident, I have asked the council to remove the leaves on the path that leads down through Deeside Gardens from North Deeside Road.

Herring Gulls – please do not feed them

by Ian Yuill on 22 November, 2018

Action – Granville Place road repairs

by Ian Yuill on 16 November, 2018

The Roads Service has patched potholes and broken areas in the road surface of Granville Place after I urged them to take action. Whilst this is welcome, it is certainly no substitute for proper long-term repairs.
